Default Std Pro unmarked barrel

I picked up a Std Pro carbine with original finish that appears to have the original barrel assembly w/type 1 band, front sight appears to have never been off. Interesting thing is there are no manufacturer marks on the barrel. It looks like an Underwood to me; usual barrel milling pattern, integral gas cylinder, short skirt. Just no manufacturers mark. Proof P is there and looks like a Std Pro one.

Comparing against another Std Pro w/ original barrel assembly (Marlin) that I have:

Proof looks the same.

Staking pattern on the back of the front sight is the same.

Staking on the front sight pin is the same.

So I have to think it's original. Thoughts? Are there any other reports of unmarked Underwood barrels?

The higher ridges on the barrel is typical Underwood style milling.

Yes, but others didn't grind their turnings smooth either



Perhaps it's a Buffalo Arms barrel which didn't get marked. That company appears to be known for its extreme "variations" as to barrel markings

All true, but I did not know Buffalo Arms made type 1 barrels.

The staking on the backside of the front sight is very SP like, as is the proof P on the mystery barrel. What's the first three digits of the serial of the SP with the mystery barrel? That won't help a lot, but there's a possibility it could.

BTW, it looks UEF to me too.
